Nintendo Switch Becomes The Best-Selling Nintendo Console In The US

Switch had its best-selling week ever in the USA during the Thanksgiving shopping extravaganza.

While the Switch is showing momentum and had a very strong kickoff to the 2018 holiday season, it still has a long way to go before it catches up with the Wii's overall sales.

Also aided by strong November 22-26 sales, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system surpassed lifetime sales of 2.5 million. Nintendo haven't released specific Thanksgiving weekend Switch sales numbers, but the system had it best-selling week ever, and has now sold 8.2 million units in North America.

According to the beloved game company, not only did it have its best-selling week ever in the United States but also became the best-selling Nintendo console in US history between the Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday period.

Nintendo Switch has successfully sold over 8.2 million units since its March 2017 launch.
